Obama Is Already Pushing His Radical Socialist Agenda On America In His Education Bill
Viva la Revolucion!
Barack Obama is already pushing his radical socialist agenda on America.
His 2007 Education bill is filled with “revolutionary ideas” that involve incentives for “desired behaviors” and “important social outcomes.”
Marinka Peschmann reported today at Canada Free Press on Obama’s education bill, S.2111.
Unfortunately Gov. Sarah Palin wasn’t exaggerating when she said on Saturday that Presidential hopeful Barack Obama was friendly “with terrorists” referring to William Ayers, the unrepentant terrorist and former Weather Underground Operative.
The question to ask today, however, is whether or not Ayer’s radical ideologies play a role in Obama’s revolutionary 2007 education legislation.
In a debate with Sen. Hillary Clinton, Obama tried to downplay his association with Ayers when he said, “This is a guy who lives in my neighborhood…He’s not somebody who I exchange ideas with on a regular basis.” But Ayers served as “Collaborative” co-chair crafting education policies to Obama’s chairmanship in the Chicago Annenberg Challenge (CAC). CAC, a foundation the Obama campaign maintains allocated “grants targeted to improve student performance and promote teacher training and leadership development in the Chicago Public Schools,” reportedly funneled over US$100 million to radical activists
In a statement to Stanley Kurtz who reported, “Obama and Ayers Pushed Radicalism on Schools,” the Obama campaign said, “…by the time Barack Obama met him, Ayers was a faculty member at the University of Illinois, and he has held the title of ‘distinguished scholar’ at the University of South Carolina…” Since then, Obama, on September 27, 2007, introduced in the Senate the “Positive Behavior for Effective Schools Act” which incidentally cites three unnamed schools in three States including Illinois and South Carolina to justify Obama’s expansive education legislation’s purpose.
Obama’s education bill, S.2111, significantly redesigns and amends the Elementary and Secondary Education Act to allow, in part, for “State…local educational agencies, and schools to increase implementation of early intervention services, particularly school-wide positive behavior supports.”
According to Section 3, “the term `positive behavior support’ means a systematic approach to embed proven practices for early intervening services, including a range of systemic and individualized strategies to reinforce desired behaviors and eliminate reinforcement for problem behaviors, in order to achieve important social outcomes (emphasis added)…”
Section 5 called: “Teacher and Principal Preparation to Improve School Climate,” mandates a new requirement for teachers and principals. It’s described as “an understanding of social or emotional, or both, learning in children…such as positive behavior support.” Obama’s bill also provides for “instructional leadership skills to help teachers” satisfy this requirement.
